On the limits of brain science

Paolo Legrenzi and Carlo Umilta
Frances Anderson

  • A critical and sober appraisal of neuroimaging, showing how the biased and unquestioning use of brain imaging technology could have significant cultural effects for all of us.
  • Whilst not diminishing the great advances made within neuroscience, this short and accessible book is a much needed critique of science and society's obsession with all things to do with the brain
  • Written by an experienced psychologist and neuropsychologist
